Domestic boat emissions

Have your say !!

The Department of Transport is asking boat owners, port and marina operators, boat yards and storage companies to respond to a Call for Evidence, looking at air pollutant emissions from all domestic vessels used around the coast and inland waterways.

All the information gathered will be used to help the Government understand more clearly the extend of emissions from vessels that do not currently fall within the scope of environmental regulations, and establish if it can do more to address the issue.

A summary of responses will be published within three months of the close of the Call for Evidence, which will end on 11 January 2020.
